The Osteopath won this a year ago and has continued to win races at a similar level despite the advancing years. He's in here at a realistic claiming price after landing a Redcar seller but Gabrial The Thug is a specialist at Wolverhampton these days and ran a shocker in a similar race to this at Beverley last time. I'm Super Too won at amateur's race at Beverley before a good run in a Class 5 handicap at Carlisle but DAY OF THE EAGLE (NAP) is the top-rated here and should be good enough. He won two minor handicaps earlier in the year and was narrowly beaten in a Class 4 handicap at Carlisle recently, form that would be far too good for these.
